    What do you mean by MCSE in Windows XP only? The MCSE consists of several exams and covers Windows Server 2003 technologies...

    I don't understand your question. I would say the MCSE would be more valuable than say a N+ (entry level cert, IMO)

    If you mean you are just starting out and looking to get your foot in the door, stick with the entry level certs first. (A+ N+) A MCSE with no experience lack credibility.

    An entry level windows XP certification would be MCDST. That may be what you would want to look at although you may want to move on to the Net+ first. If for no other reason then you should still have time to sit the exam and have the certification for life and not have to update it every 3 years.

    More specifically 70-271 and 70-272 at $125 each will give you the titles MCP after the first exam and MCDST after the second exam. MCSE is 7 exams at $125 each and a very time comsuming study process.

    Since you already have an A+ the MCDST will give you a better chance of landing an entry level help desk job. Net+ with no experience not so much.
